Sample answer :
There are copious amount of dishes in the world which attract gourmet people. In my culture, it is believed that the food which you eat describes who you are.
India is a diverse country and in my country food and dishes are also diverse and rich. Even it changes from house to house.
I like all the varieties of dishes that made in India from famous dal tadka of Punjab to mouth watering curries of Gujarat.
In addition, I also like Chinese, fast food and pizzas.
However, one dish which is closed to my heart is ‘dal bati’ prepared by my mom.
Actually, I like all the varieties she prepares. She knows and makes all the varieties of dishes perfectly delicious.
but this dish can be considered the epitome of the culinary skill of her.
It is actually a traditional dish in the area where I come from.
It is made very frequently almost in every occasion.
It generally consist of two main items first of which is ‘dal’
‘Dal’ is basically a curry which is made by mixing different pulses.Pulses are staple food of India.
Generally, it is spicy because plenty of spices and condiments are added to it. It is rich in oil too.
Second one is ‘Bati’ which is a local term for chapatti. But this ‘bati’ is different from flat chapatti.it is in the rounded bulk form.
This dish is much famous in my region not only for its yummy taste but also for its healthiness.
Though, it is true that it’s made with lot’s of condiments, it is also rich in protein.
Moreover, it is served with ‘ghee’ – a traditional Indian product made up of butter rich in lipid or fat.
Thus, it fulfills the requirement of protein, carbohydrate and fat.
All in all, it is a combination of taste and health.
It is really enjoyable to have this dish at your lunch or dinner.
